Review by:
Neville Symington

This book on the life and work of Wilfred Bion, written by a French psychiatrist and first published in French, is now well translated by Claire Pajaczkowska, with a foreword by Bob Hinshelwood, a Kleinian analyst of the British Society.

This book is well written and structured to include all the main foci of Bion's personal life and, at the same time, his development as an original psychoanalytic thinker. Bléandonu has charted and summarized Bion's theories as they emerge chronologically.
